The Uniontown Eagles and the Jayhawk-Linn Jayhawks played at Uniontown Tuesday, January 28. Both Varsity teams won against them, as did the JV teams.
The girls’ Varsity beat the Jayhawks 52 to 35. Danielle Howard and Karleigh Schoenberger once more lead in points, earning the team 16 and 22 points respectively. Howard also had 6 assists and 8 steals. Sammie Hampton garnered 8 points and 4 rebounds. Breleigh Harris had 3 steals. Coach Miller said, “Proud of these girls in their effort in winning all 4 quarters of this ball game. We will get back to work tomorrow and prepare for another home game this Friday against Crest.”
The boys also beat Jayhawk tonight with a score of 43 to 38. Jake Harvey scored 13 points and made 3 of his 6 three-point shots. He also had 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 6 steals. Luke George scored 11 points and Luke Perry scored 9 points. Hunter Schaaf had 7 rebounds and 2 assists. “I thought we played well defensively against Jayhawk,” Coach Hays said. “Our defense kept us in the game the first half. We were able to come out in the second half and make a few shots which helped us build a lead. We need to continue to work hard and improve because we have some big league games coming up.” Korbin Miller, who usually plays for the JV team, commented, “They played really well on defense, and our shots started falling toward the end of the game.”
